Clinton Democratic Club Hosts Lewandowski, Stavisky
The Clinton Democratic Club held its monthly meeting on Wednesday, May 15 at the law offices of Vallone & Vallone. President Paul Vallone opened the monthly meeting by thanking everyone for their overwhelming support for his campaign for City Council in the 19th District of Northeast Queens. Vallone also honored one of the Bayside-Whitestone Lions Club Scholarship winners, Nicole Javorsky, for her outstanding academic record and dedication to community service.
Featured speakers included Queens Parks Commissioner Dorothy Lewandowski, who spoke of her efforts to revive the Rockaways after the town suffered from the effects of Hurricane Sandy and proudly announced the new comfort station available at Fort Totten; and state Senator Toby Ann Stavisky, who discussed the state legislature’s recently passed gun legislation and a bill to enforce women’s pay equity, of which she is a sponsor. Also present was the White Roof Project’s Communications Coordinator, Lynn Meyer, who discussed her company’s initiative to paint city buildings’ roofs white in an effort to slow climate change and save energy. Members were also treated to a powerful rendition of Little Mix’s “Wings” by the Clinton Club Kids.
Former City Council Speaker Peter F. Vallone Sr. made a special appearance, thanking members for their attendance and emphasizing the importance of residents becoming involved in their local political clubs.
The Clinton Democratic Club’s June meeting date is to be announced, although Vallone noted the Club will meet earlier in the month instead of on the originally scheduled date.
